This is a limited edition, signed print of my ‘Blackbirds and Brambles’ pencil & watercolour drawing. ‘Blackbirds and Brambles’ is a drawing of blackbirds feasting on delicious juicy berries. The purple-black berries are a wonderful food source for garden birds, pheasants, foxes, mice and other mammals in August/September, but a bramble bush in the garden provides year-round benefits for wildlife. From May to September, the pinkish white flowers provide nectar and pollen for bees, hoverflies, moths, butterflies and lacewings. The dense thickets are excellent nesting places for thrushes, wrens, finches and blackbirds in the springtime, and they provide shelter and protection in the winter.
There are just 60 of these larger size prints available.
Size: It is printed on A3 size paper: 297 x 420 mm (11.7 x 16.5 in). The actual print is 200 x 390 mm (7.8 x 15.2 in)
This print would look fantastic framed up and would make a lovely addition to your home, or as a special gift for a friend who loves birds.
It will be packaged carefully in a protective envelope to keep it flat for transit.
You can purchase the Blackbirds and Brambles image as a lovely wrap-around card in our shop. It is one of the A Garden for Wildlife series which raises money for our local Macmillan Cancer Centre.
ABOUT THE PRINTS
The print will be digitally printed on smooth matte archival paper using special pigment inks. The special inks ensure there is no fading over time.
This print is part of a limited edition of 60 prints. This means that once all 60 prints have sold then there won’t be any more printed. The print will be signed in pencil along with the edition number e.g. 7/60.
The art prints are all drawn, scanned, printed & hand assembled in my studio in the Scottish Borders. The original drawings are done in pencil & watercolour. The drawings are inspired by the rich variety of the British countryside. We believe it is important that people feel connected with the fields, hedgerows and woodlands around them. Only by loving and enjoying the countryside can we learn to care for it.
